Barkant Forage Turnip
An improved diploid forage turnip, Barkant has a purple tankard root with 50% of the bulb on top of the ground. Barkant has good tolerance to bolting and, under a correct grazing management system, it can provide multiple harvests with up to 4-6 tons/acre of dry matter production in 60-90 days. It has high bulb yield with excellent top growth. The high sugar content in Barkant provides winter hardiness and increased palatability. It is also suitable for stockpiling or strip grazing with sheep and cattle.
